In mid-April, the marketing info was revealed:

“ZADAK announced the launch of SPARK RGB DDR5 desktop gaming memory modules. SPARK RGB DDR5 is ZADAK’s first module in the DDR5 format. It delivers speeds from 5200 MHz to 6400 MHz and is available in capacities of 16 GB and 32 GB. It’s sure to be a hit among early adopters and high-end gamers. The SPARK RGB DDR5 gaming memory module features a matte white exterior with a frosted texture. The top of the module features a slender aluminum alloy dissipation array that releases heat from the heat sink. And the staggered design of the materials presents a hollow light-guide effect with gem-like decorations. The eye is inevitably drawn to the gem shape set in the center of the heat sink, which shows off the dynamic multi-zone RGB lighting. This stunning aesthetic will give it a place of honor in any high-end gaming rig. Overclocking doesn’t need to be a hassle. The SPARK RGB DDR5 memory module supports Intel XMP 3.0 overclocking technology. So with one click, e-sports players can tap into a hidden reservoir of powerful performance when needed.

Equipped with Power Management Chip and On-die ECC Debug Mechanism
SPARK RGB DDR5 gaming memory modules are equipped with power management chips to reduce noise in the circuit. These control fluctuations in power and allow the system to function stably and efficiently. And DDR5 supports on-die ECC error correction, which can automatically calculate and correct data errors in the memory. This improves system performance, stability, and data accuracy, resulting in a smoother gaming experience.

Compatible with Five Leading RGB Control Programs
Whether you use ASUS Aura Sync, MSI Mystic Light Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, ASRock Polychrome Sync, or Razer Chroma for lighting effect synchronization, SPARK RGB DDR5 is compatible with all of them right out of the box. So gamers can freely customize the lighting design according to their preferences and show off their style.

SPARK RGB DDR5 has passed the compatibility certification of most mainstream motherboard manufacturers, ensuring stable operation on QVL-listed motherboards. To give gamers more options, single-channel and dual-channel packages are available. Four different speed range options can be selected, from 5200 MHz 1.25 V at 38-38-38-84 to 40-40-40-84 6400 MHz 1.35 V. Using carefully chosen DRAM ICs to ensure excellent stability and compatibility with notable motherboard brands, the outstanding performance advantages of SPARK RGB DDR5 are apparent. It’s going to spark an overclocking revolution.”

Enough with the marketing stuff here, so we can proceed to the essence. Let’s see what we have under the hood. Unfortunately, the Thaiphoon Burner, an excellent utility for checking the essential data on a RAM – cannot be used for the DDR5, as JEDEC doesn’t want to provide the needed information.

CPU-Z then. It shows that Samsung is the DRAM manufacturer.

Traditionally, we’ll kick off the review with photo-shooting and the practical part (benchmark/games). You put the sticks in, enable XMP (which is, in fact, the industry standard, and it’s hard to spot any RAM without this feature nowadays), reboot, and that’s it. The chips are covered with a heatsink to ensure that the memory and PCB maintain a similar temperature, providing the best performance.
